Things I liked:

The accuracy, because accuracy is king. The power, this rifle is extremely powerful, I had to build a large dirt back stop in order to fire this thing comfortably with no worries of where The bullet/pellet could end up. 2 inch groups at 50 yards, shooting off a rest, using either Polymags or JB kings.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing at this time

What others should know:

I have taken some very large groundhogs, and other than targets thats the only thing I shoot. Like I said, this thing is amazingly powerful, and the same care you would use with a firearm you must use with this rifle as well. Mine shoots the most accurately with Polymags or JB Kings. I tried airventuri 95 grain hollowpoints, but they produce flyers often.

    Things I liked:

    It preforms. I am mostly an FT shooter and this was ONLY purchased for the Misses. I actually do like it though. I do not care for the bullpup craze nor the black rifle thing and was not too thrilled to order this. But. It does feel good shouldering. You do NEED TALL mounts then you can shoulder it eyes closed, open them and your right on target. Trigger - on "my" airguns I like 4oz 2 stage- thought I would hate this trigger, but again, nope, really an excellent clean break hunting trigger, didn't even need any break in just a very clean break! With Nosler ammo very quite , much more than what I would think from reading reviews, JSB pellets are much louder. Looking for all shots touching at 50 yards - stock- I consider it a 4 shot rifle, those 4 will all be touching with either ammo at 50. Will post about it more after chrony & use.

    Things I would have changed:

    Please, throw the "dust cover" for the fill nipple away, don't include it, replace it with anything or even nothing, junk. That's all.

    What others should know:

    This airgun should never be used anywhere you couldn't use a 30-06.

    Very good accuracy with a variety of lead. Has a very good feel. Full lenth rails.

    Things I would have changed:

    I really dont have any complaints.

    What others should know:

    Shoots well in all positions. Very powerful rifle with good accuracy and a wide range of ammo works well on this gun. The noslers have superior performance in this gun.

    Things I liked:

    Power! 10 shots well over 700fps Light Weight Starting at 7.7lbs few if any other gun weighs in at less Plastic Light Weight Lower Price Bulldog can be kicked around a bit more than a wood stock (I cover the gun with Camo REM WRAPS) Too protect finish works well for wrapping the barrel deadens sound.

    Things I would have changed:

    I prefer Sling Mounts to be on top & Picatinny Weaver The shroud could do a better job knocking the report down Grip is by far as plastic as it gets (Hogue Rubber Sleeve fits nicely $8-10) Butt is like big as a Whales Tale.

    What others should know:

    Bulldog is a great hard shooting gun, I see why its called the Bulldog (its really too long to be considered a BullPup at 36"x12" with scope mounted) Its full Rifle with Great Bullpup Design Attributes. Its Long 28" Barrel gives the Bulldog the Power & Accuracy advantage over a shorter gun. This is a BullDog it is Big Loud Powerful, Not A Thing Puppyish About This Gun Its Style Grows On A Person. More to come after some shooting fun

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Great Gun Seems Accurate enough. I shot at distance up to 75 yards. Ability to hit most squirrels at 50 to 60 yards. At 50 Yards with JSB 81 grain you can keep a solid .5 to 1 inch group. I get 10 solid shots with up to 20 shots accurate up to 35 yards. This allows for less refilling yet the accuracy drops off after 10 shot mostly pellet drop. So if you want to shoot more with less power you can extend the gun to 20 shots with JSB pellets out to about 40 yards with little compensation to pellet drop. After 40 yards the pellet drops like a rock. Nice Trigger, well made, accurate light. compact..... I would recommend this for bigger game or even smaller game if you can stand the noise.

    Things I would have changed:

    This rifle is loud as hell. It is louder than my 22 or just about that loud. I would love for an air stripper or silencer on this thing. There is loud rattle tang noise when the gun shoots. Other than that is is a great gun.

    What others should know:

    The gun is loud other than that it is great so far.

    Things I liked:

    Insane amount of knockdown power. Ergonomically a nice gun. Very accurate. I get sub 1 inch groupings with jsb and nosler pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    At 2200 psi very quiet and still plenty of power...at 3000 psi it's loud. Not much quieter than a powder rifle. Much louder than I expected it to be.

    What others should know:

    Great rifle for hunting....well my second one is. The first had a leak, which I read is notorious on these. You either get a good one or bad one. However, Pyramid's customer service is awesome. They even rushed me a brand new replacement. I received it less than a week after sending out the bad one.

    Things I liked:

    I bought mine here a couple weeks ago and I am impressed! Crosman/Benjamin hit it out of the big bore park, something I doubted would happen after the Rogue fiasco. It points well, has a great trigger for the hunting air gun crowd and more than enough accuracy for that task. The ability to use AR 15 sighing equipment is a stroke of genius.

    Things I would have changed:

    Stiffen up that stock, line or fill the voids with foam to lessen the rattle of plastic vrs the outside world.

    What others should know:

    This bullpup is a air gun modders dream. It can be taken to 250 FPE easily. I fully expect to see a cottage after market parts industry to pop up like it did with the MROD. It is loud, and fixing that will not be easy. This bears no resemblance to the Rogue and if you like big bores you will love this one.

    Things I liked:

    I bought the Bulldog from Pyramid air because of thier reputation. The "other" main competetor has a horrible customer service record. Even if Pyramid wasnt the cheapest I still would purchase from them. The gun is awesome and extremely accurate. I found the Nozzler bullets to be the most accurate so far but the 95 grains are very good from Air venturi. The gun is light, powerful and you can accessorize it to no end. This gun is made in Bloomfield NY by Americans who care. I have custom built Crosman products from the Bloomfield custom shop and the quality is top notch. Now that I'm hooked on the power of a big bore I'll be buying more from Pyramid Air.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, but an AR style carry handle open sight set up would be cool.

    What others should know:

    The gun is loud, not fire arm loud but with the long nozzlers it makes a loud TWANG sound. If you want to shoot in your back yard and have close neighbors you might want to talk to them and explain its an air gun!

    Things I would have changed:

    NOTHING

    What others should know:

    This is the most accurate .357 cal. air gun I own. I have the Evanix Rainstorm ii that I bought here last years model that shoots a 9" group at 100ft with jsb pellets. The Bulldog will put the same jsb pellets through the same hole at 100ft. The Bulldog is also more powerful in my testing. The Rainstorm dose not have the much needed twist in the barrel that the bulldog has.This twist makes the gun far more superior accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    As far as power it's a beast. 145 grain nosler so far I shot thru 2. 2x6 pine at 53 yards and took a deer at 40 yards, the deer dropped in place. Distance I have only shot 80 yards at a 2x6 it was accurate and a pass thru I was very impressed. Free hand shooting the gun is balanced well and is easy to free hand.

    Things I would have changed:

    So far nothing

    Amazing power and penetration with 145 grain Nosler bullets,easy to read gauge on side,fill port under bottom.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing it is well worth the money I paid for it!

    What others should know:

    Make sure you have a strong back stop,my first shot blew through a 2x10 and 3/4 plywood like nothing at 20 yards with the 145 Nosler bullets,I have tried other bullets and pellets but nothing compares to the Nosler for power and accuracy,for just shooting up stuff I use the JSB Exact .35.I trapped a wild hog around 135 pound and shot it at point blank range and the 145 Nosler went In top of head and out bottom neck I added this statement because we normally use a.22lr and the bullet my go into head and travel down shoulder or back and damage some meat,there was no meat damage with the Bulldog.Great gun get you one!

    Things I liked:

    Very Accurate, Fairly quiet for it's power! Well Built made in USA. Going to the gun range and having guys with kitted out AR-15's and M4'S drooling over your "pellet gun" and shooting better 100yard groups than them! lol

    Things I would have changed:

    The gauge should be a better piece...It is reading 150-200 psi higher than my pump gauge and you always trust the gauge with the wider sweep range to be more accurate. I have 4,500psi. black face gauges from McMaster-CARR ready to install. But I am still making sure the gun does not leak before I take anything apart on the gun, I have only had it 2 days but so far so good!

    What others should know:

    I consider myself very well versed with Benjamin PCP's, I have had the .22 Discovery which I had tuned by Mac1 to 30 fpe, then I had the .22 Marauder which I self tuned to 36 fpe. Both those guns were very accurate and have made incredible shots and kills with my Marauder out to 130 yards. So I trusted Benjamin again and bought a Bulldog and OMG this thing is a beast! First thing I did was throw a 3-12x44 Scope and Bi-pod,light and laser....then I went to the gun range! LOL, I had to half my time telling the guys around me what the hell I was shooting and showing off that nasty Nosler 145grain. and boy did that get their attention. But what mattered most to me was could the damn thing group?! Answer....YES!!!.. Seriously at 25 yards it is hole and hole with JSB 81 grain and the Nosler, @ 50 yards it starts to open up to maybe an inch with both ammo. 100 yards both the Nosler and JSB were still grouping really nice, so I think it can even shoot out to 150-200 yards.

    Things I liked:

    Power, Great Balance, Accuracy, Light Weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    This guns has a very basic engineering design problem with the the air bleed valve. Crosman uses a very small screw pushing down a ball bearing to seal the 3000 psi pressure and is metal to metal when opening and closing valve. Because of this, the Gun leaks all air in a few days id worn or gets dirt in valve. Suggested design change, use larger screw and Teflon Tape to line the screw threads.

    What others should know:

    The gun can leak at the air bleeder screw. The gun is great! However, if you develop a slow leak, get the gun to a machine shop to fix the valve with more hefty parts.

    Things I liked:

    Lot's of accessory mounts. Power. Look, ease of Magazine loading, etc.

    Things I would have changed:

    'Plastic' feel - Feels like a toy even though it's certainly not. Put a 'real' cover on the fill port. Maybe add some side picatinny rails. Rubber coat the grip or put some grooves there.

    What others should know:

    I've heard a lot of comments about this being loud. Maybe I'm deaf or old, but compared to my Dragon Claw, etc. it doesn't seem loud to me. I do use ear muffs indoors. Seems very similar to my Rogue with a little less power. The front bottom accessory mount is plastic and I broke it with a simple tipover but Crosman sent me a new one (Great company). First shots went through a 2x12 and 2.5 sheets of 3/4 plywood. Lot's of power. I was using the 145 noslers and it seems to like those. Not a lot of shots yet (all indoors) but at close range (10 yards) it'll shootin the same hole time after time. Magazine loads a lot easier than the one on my Rogue. Lever action is crisp and clean leaving no doubt. I like the fact that you can tell the magazine is empty. This is a bargain for a big bore. Although I'm not a huge fan of the bullpup design (I have two and like them but prefer traditional designs) it's a nice design. You'll need to add a riser for a good scope.

    Things I liked:

    Powerful and Compact. I like the easy to use action of the side lever, and use it effortlessly when another shot is needed. I took a coyote at 60-65 yards with one shot. Usually, I try and make headshots on bigger game like this, but hard to take a shot as it was moving and the shot was behind the shoulder. Coyote didn't go but a short distance before it fell over and expired. Very nice trigger. Easy to fill and operate. I really like to noise level as compared to rifles without the integrated suppression.

    What others should know:

    This rifle and magazine works well with either the 145gr Nosler Ballistic Tip ammo, or the 81gr JSB Diablo pellets. Both impact the target at roughly the same spot. This was a surprise.

    Things I liked:

    Nice looking gun, plenty of power. The few shots I took, the pellets were either touching or close to touching. It is going to be a great hunter.

    Things I would have changed:

    Drop the perceived report. Can't practice in back yard.

    What others should know:

    I have only shot it at 25 yards using jsb pellets, fairly accurate. I got off 9 shots, before the wife asked me to stop shooting it, was making too much noise. I was thinking the new hatsan in .30 cal was loud, the wife never complained about it,but I guess the more air you push the louder the rifle will be. This rifle is not, I repeat, not back yard friendly. Which is one of the main reasons I purchased this rifle. Once I get a chance to crony the rifle and shoot other pellets, at my friend's house, I will add to this review .

    Things I liked:

    LIKE THE BULL-PUP, LOVE THE LOOK. THIS RIFLE IS REALLY FUN TO SHOOT BUT JUST SO YOU KNOW IT STILL IS LOUD COMPARED TO TO MOST AIR RIFLES, COMPARED TO OTHER .357 IT IS PROBABLY MUCH MORE QUIET! AWESOME TRIGGER IT IS JUST RIGHT FOR A HUNTING GUN. PICATINNY RAILS MAKE IT MORE FLEXIBLE WITH YOUR ACCESSORIES. CAN BE PUMPED UP RELIABLY AND WITH ACCEPTABLE EFFORT USING A HANDPUMP IF ONLY TAKING 5 SHOT GROUPS

    Things I would have changed:

    DO NOT LIKE THE TRIGGER GUARD.DO NOT LIKE THE LACK OF REAL RUBBER FOR GRIP ON FOREARM AND PISTOL-GRIP.DO NOT LIKE THAT IT STILL IS PRETTY LOUD I WOULD RATHER HAVE MADE IT 4 INCHES LONGER AND SHROUDED THE BARREL REPORT MUCH MORE ESPECIALLY SINCE ITS A BULL-PUP DESIGN!!!! USING SOME WOOD WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE

    What others should know:

    SO FAR PRETTY ACCURATE WITH NOSLER, AND CAN DO 100 YARDS WITH ACCEPTABLE AMOUNT OF DROP. PUT IN EARPLUGS TRUST ME ITS ON THE LOUD SIDE!!

    What others should know:

    I have tried JSB pellets for this air rifle and the Nosler pellets. Both were accurate enough at 50 yards using my Bushnell red dot sight. Noise was minimal with Nosler pellet, JSB pellets however are loud!
